Book Our New CPD Training – Free!

19 July

As part of FloControl’s commitment to providing support, education and information, we have been a trusted name in providing Continuous Professional Development courses – CPDs – for a number of years now. Our free one-hour course on Variable Flow Systems and the Design and Operation of Pressure Independent Control Valves has been hosted to a variety of companies and partners looking to develop their staff and themselves. You can book CPDs right here on our website and we’re thrilled to reveal we now have a second CPD available to book.

Our new CPD, Commissioning Hydronic Systems with Ultra-Low Flow PICVs, was written by our founder Dennis Taylor and presented by one of our engineers, who hold Masters degrees in engineering and have each been working with FloControl for a number of years. The CIBSE accreditation guarantees you the highest standard of innovative design thinking and technical innovation, to strengthen your hydronic technical and application knowledge.

This new CPD begins with an introduction to the PICV and the industry definition of an Ultra-Low Flow Rate. It goes on to provide examples of ultra-low flow applications and the components therein, and discusses both the implications and limitations of PICVs. The course takes an in-depth look at system components, ultra-low flow tolerances, and the importance of accurate methodology, with multiple examples of setting flow rates and the produced effects when commissioning an ultra-low flow system.

If you want somewhere to start on ultra-low flows, we published a paper recently on PICVs in Ultra Low Flow HVAC Applications, so be sure to give that a read also.

This is bookable right now as well as our other CPD, which looks at variable flow systems and why they were introduced. It teaches attendees about the various phases, i.e. DPCVs, Dynamic Valves, Pressure Independent Valves, Pressure and Temperature Independent Valves, as well as the benefits of the various options. Furthermore, the course takes a deep dive on PICVs, how they work, what makes a good PICV and design considerations for hydronic systems. PICV and ABV locations in the system. prefabricated solutions, system and terminal unit flushing methodology, actuation and control, end of line requirements and low flow pump protection strategies.

Both of our CPDs can be shared in person at the offices at the booking party, where our calendar allows, or given online over Microsoft Teams to a room of viewers. The CPD session ends with a Q&A with the host and a CIBSE CPD Attendance certificate.
